That’s all I want to know. Good, bad, indifferent, just tell me what’s next. What’s next tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, etc. Just tell me what’s next. If you have read any of my blogs, you know this is a repeat topic. If you have listened to me talk for longer than 5 minutes, you know this is a repeat topic. I am a planner. I like to plan everything. And I mean everything. So, one of my many struggles is letting God be in control. Putting my faith and trust in God. Knowing that He has a plan and that plan will be executed and will be perfect.
For me, every day is a lesson to trust in God. I am thankful that God never gives up on me. My daily hope and prayer is that God will continue to take control and never allow me to decide what I think is best. Because I know, with my sin nature, my plan will never be the right one.
“Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation.”
“Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.”
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
God, please let me trust and follow you daily …
About 3 months ago, my current oncologist abruptly quit practicing. Still don’t know where he went or what happened. Through a referral, I found a new one quickly. He recommended a new procedure. It’s called Y-90 procedure. It takes miniature beads of glass filled with radiation and places them directly on the tumor. Ideally, this procedure keeps the tumor from growing ever again. If it does start growing again, the process can be repeated. I had my first procedure on the tumor on the right side of my liver today. In about 4-6 weeks, I will have a second procedure on the tumor on the left side of my liver. Once both of those procedures are complete, then I will start a new treatment on the tumor on my pancreas. As always, God is in control and I trust in Him for the results. I am thankful for Him and His leadership in my life.
